RESIDENTIAL COURSES

13th - 17th June 2019

5 days / 4 nights

With the success of both the cookery school and subsequent Pop Up dinners I am delighted to announce a very exciting residential workshop next year, to be hosted by the truly stunning Creative Workshop and accommodation venue Les Soeurs Anglaises in La Dordogne, SW France. I will be leading an in-depth cooking weekend, where food lovers can discover the delights of the culinary traditions of South West France. We will utilise some of the season’s best produce to create delicious dishes pairing Asian, Middle Eastern and North African flavours with more traditional Northern European ingredients.

the Project

The long weekend will kick off with an evening meal, prepared and cooked by me, welcoming you all to the course. On the first morning you can accompany me to the largest weekly market in the region to discover the season’s best local produce. If you like, this could include a pastry and coffee at the market rather than breakfast at the accommodation. We will return to the venue for lunch followed by an afternoon of cooking.

After breakfast, on mornings two and three you are free to relax and spoil yourself in the beautiful surroundings, by one of the two pools, or take a walk through the stunning countryside. Extra cookery classes can also be arranged as can visits to local producers or food stores. All three afternoons will be spent with hands on cooking, preparing the evening meal together. I will demonstrate some of the more complex dishes, if necessary teaching you how to prepare meat, fish, seafood and vegetables. It will be all hands on deck, slicing, chopping, searing and roasting. Participate as much or as little as you like.

Each evening meal will be the four course dinner prepared in the afternoon, accompanied of course with complimentary wines, lots of laughter and the musings of our shared love of food.

Full board, wines to accompany meals, all food costs for the cookery courses and the trip to the market incl in the price.
